Frozen New Year

7 days & 6 nights

What about celebrating New Year’s Eve in beautiful Swedish Lapland, and in company of fluffy Icelandic horses?

For this once-in-a-lifetime New Year we offer you:

  • A comfortable accommodation every night
  • Various activities that will allow you to enjoy the snowy nature as well as your family/friends
  • A real Swedish New Year’s Eve: good food, happy company and fireworks

Day-by-day program

DAY 1

Arrival at Skellefteå Airport or Jörn Train Station.

We pick you up and drive you to your accommodation, in Svansele. During your stay you will sleep in the room by the “bagarstuga”, the village’s fire oven. Bathroom and kitchen are located in the next house, the old school.

You meet us around a nice dinner and we present you the next 7 days.

Night in Svansele.

DAY 2

After a nice breakfast in the old school, we will head up to the stables where we will prepare our horses for our morning ride. In the forest, around frozen lakes… our gentle horses will bring us to beautiful quiet places.

We come back to the farm for lunch.

In the afternoon, we prepare together one of our steady horses and harness him to a typical Swedish horse sled. We take a short ride around the village and enjoy the nice winter-decorated houses.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 3

In the morning we will drive to Flarken, where the team will introduce you to their lovely sled dogs and take you for a beautiful ride in the snowy wilderness. You make a break in the middle of the day for a wilderness lunch around the fire. At the end of your first day as a musher, we meet again at Flarken for a cozy coffee break altogether.

We then drive back to Svansele.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 4

After a good breakfast, we head up to the farm to meet our 4-legged friends again. And this time, we ride for a whole day!

We will take our lunch with us in our saddle bags and have a nice break in the forest in the middle of our ride.

Back at the farm, we take care of our horses before warming up ourselves with comforting refreshments.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

Other option for this day: a day-long snowmobile safari. With supplement and according to availability.

DAY 5

It’s New Year’s Eve!

Breakfast at the old school.

We start this day of very Nordic activities with ice fishing. We first take our snowshoes to reach the lake, where then each one of us dig a hole in the ice and settle for a calm and relaxing morning.

We gather around the fire for lunch. If our fishing was successful, we will prepare the fish we just caught and grill it to complete our meal.

In the afternoon, everybody is free to prepare the New Year as they wish. Outside playing in the snow, inside playing board games or reading, there are many possibilities!

The evening is dedicated to celebration. Altogether, we will welcome the New Year around a festive dinner carefully prepared by our chef Micke.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 6

This day is dedicated to the Sami culture. In a genuine reindeer farm, you will get to share a moment with a Sami family and will have the chance to learn more about their animals and their lifestyle.
